Pullard filled in admirably for starting middle linebacker Denzel Perryman, who missed Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury. Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reported Perryman could be available in Week 17, meaning Pullard likely would lose his luster as an IDP option if he returned to his role as a backup linebacker.
Pullard (neck) was active for Thursday's game against the Cowboys.
Pullard was listed as a full participant all week in practice, so his status Thursday hardly comes as a surprise. Pullard's return is big for the Chargers' defensive front, as the linebacker recorded at least eight tackles in four straight games before suffering the injury.
Pullard (neck) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Cowboys.
Though the Chargers' practices were of lower intensity than normal this week due to the lack of time off between games, Pullard's full participation in sessions Tuesday and Wednesday seemingly put him on track to return from a two-game absence. Prior to missing time, Pullard had recorded at least eight tackles in each of his last four contests, but his opportunities could take a hit with linebacker Denzel Perryman having since returned from injured reserve.
